Nigerian Menswear Brand Onwuchekwa by Chikezie Daniel has elegantly unveiled their SS19 collection titled “monument”. Onwuchekwa SS19 reflects on its formative years, we look back in other to move forward, our love for clean lines, stripes, intarsia details, embellishments, buttons and a juxtaposition of elements and fabrics, however, we see differently and more clearly.
The lines are a reflection of the different routes we took to wholeness, the curves indicate the highs and the lows. The juxtaposition of elements is a clear representation of our complexity.
We decided on butterfly-like flower this season to symbolize the power of “personal transformation” and also the wonder and beauty of the Onwuchekwakindred.
Our prayer remains “Kamhadirah” a name from the eastern part of Nigeria that means “let me not fall”. Yes our bloom is gone and we are the seed thereof. We are “monuments” and we will not fall. See the sharp images of the lookbook below!
